Enkeltpersonforetak skal levere ny skattemelding for næringsdrivende

I år får enkeltpersonforetak stort sett skattemeldingen i nytt format og skal levere via regnskapssystem eller via I ny skattemelding erstattes alle næringsoppgaver og vedleggsskjemaer med en næringsspesifikasjon.

Skjemaet RF-1242 Næringsoppgave for billedkunstnere skal derfor kun brukes hvis du leverer skattemeldingen i gammelt format via Altinn.

Hvis du leverer skattemeldingen i nytt format, fyller du ut de nødvendige opplysningene i skattemeldingens næringsspesifikasjon.

Skattemelding for deg som er billedkunstner

If you're subject to an accounting obligation pursuant to the Accounting Act, you must submit RF-1167 Income Statement 2 instead. This applies if the business is a private limited company, a shared liability partnership, a limited partnership etc.

Self-employed persons (sole proprietorships) have an accounting obligation if the business has had assets worth over NOK 20 million or an average number of employees exceeding 20 full-time equivalents during the year. 

Sole proprietorships that prepare annual financial statements in accordance with the provision of limited accounting obligation in the Accounting Act section 3-2b can opt to submit Income Statement 5 rather than Income Statement 2 (RF-1167).
